We need a green arrow to highlight the surge in volume, and a red arrow to highlight the mkt drop, to put it all in "perspective".
Just as the Mideast is about to blow?
Yep....everyone is missing that the mid east is about to blow. Ive been warning about it for weeks. Just wait until the ICBM's start flying for some market volatility!
missiles and markets both go up, don't they?
@the spirit of untruth
You gotta be kidding me... so it's not "the jews" but the russians who have destroyed western society with their russian fetzen... IDIOT
LMAO! What a fucking joke!
BUT these days there is NO SUCH THING AS LIMIT UP!! ONLY LIMIT DOWN when the fuckers say so!! They will get bitch slapped real soon when gold spikes $100 in a day!!!!
Price matters. Volume doesn't. A disappointed perma bear who just doesn't understand the concept of rallies. Too bad about that. You were told right here, over and over again, that the reflex rally was coming; it's here. Get over it. Your big crash has been delayed due to technical reasons. Check back next year.
Next year? LOL
You fucking moron. It's a dead cat bounce. Another 300 for the DOW at most before the downturn resumes
I'm going to have to go with Sun...HOWEVER, NO ONE KNOWS DICK. The market is totally and artifically contrived... I will say that price only matters yes HOWEVER the point is that volume at 40% of normal is not widespread participation and is BS. Empire index 3 declines in a row, europe faling apart, 2 bailouts no improvement? The market should be at 5k, the fact it's not mean it can do anything..
The price my ass.
I lured out a few coin at ones and two'sies this morning at very ludicrous low prices. I was hoping to trap a buyer.
It sat for two days and nights.
Price yea right.
Upon reflection I think the market is like a dark room filled with people playing spin the bottle and saying "You first."
LOL.. what a joke.
edit: followed by usual immediate decline of the SPY as it trades in the after hours.. ha ha ha
Please don't soil the good name of jokes everwhere by associating them with this epic bullshit.
don,t mess with SPX 666 or SPX -6.66%. Both days the symbol signalled the lowest daily close for at least a week.
that,s some heck of a fat tail probability.
cant wait for silver hitting 66.60 or does that only work on reverse movements of the SPX?
We just had a 7sigma oversold low. It had to bounce
as in fanny and fred and aig and gm, please complete the list yourself.
Only need a teeny bit of organic buying to set the machines in motion,
It's so nice to see that the normal insanity is back.
Yeah man....I was beginning to worry that actual fundamentals were going to return after last weeks roller-coaster ride. Looks like the recent load of hopium got distributed to the dealers just in time!
Thanks Bennie and Nobama!
Yep, the 11:30 EST bid-this-fucker-up-relentlessly switch was flipped. It's conitinuing on in the AH.
There is literally nothing of any integrity remaining in this. None.
Correct. Banker desperation. You can just smell it. The trouble this time is that the economic data confirms recession. No one wanted their paper shit during the 2 year long rally, and now Average Joe is taking the gain and exiting.
These guys are one SEC enforcement action from a complete market meltdown. And while that continues to seem like a low probability event, the SECs continued failure to do anything about all the bullshit market manipulation going on day after day on these melt ups will only pound the last nail in the market's coffin.
The bankers cannot continue to be highly leveraged in a recession bound market...and so they need people to sell this shit to. And of course, gold confirms this.
Looks like a lose/lose situation to me. Thank you, criminal syndicate known as Wall Street.
Let the Greater American Depression roll on then........
And the S&P downgrade was something totaly unexpected and deemed impossible as well, untill it suddenly dropped 1 morning out of the blue. After all, we'd had our souls sold for us and reached a 'compromise' and all. Hey good luck to everyone in their filet mignon wetsuits swimming with great whites saying you'll carve great steaks for the BBQ from them. Yea.
untill it suddenly dropped 1 morning out of the blue.

Evening - and a Friday to boot if I recall ...
All the really nasty shit is reserved for Friday after close. Christmas Eve even better.
Actually it was out Thursday morning.
Do you really think the SEC or any government agency is going to take down Wall Street?
Not a chance, but they are going down. Silver is their achilles heel. Although Nathan Rothschild is already positioned in the HKMEX so it's not like they'll go away when JPM and GS crash. It will be a hollow victory and most people will probably go back to sleep.
Change your avatar please. I come here for the boobs.
Hey CD average joe got burned down about three years ago. No average joes left in this casino.
The Bulls will be all over TV tonight. They told you!!
WHOO HOO! Yea! Bernank Goin into Jacksons Kornhole to make the case for QE3 free trillions to save the markets with the DOW pumping +200 daily and easily!
It is unreasonable to measure today's volume and compare it to recent volume, which was massive. Yes, a pullback is probably coming for a few days, but looking at volume in this manner is incorrect from a trading perspective. Obviously volume at a major low will be higher than a major top, so average volume will dry up as professionals buy at the lows, prices rise and amateurs get on board the move. If people expect 4 million contracts to be traded every day on the e-mini, they are not really well versed in how markets function.
Um, volume was at record lows a couple days ago and -700 points lower too.
I think you missed the point: The mkt is getting back to "normal" with ONE-WAY rallies on low volume. Of course it can't trade 4-6 million/day, but +20 handles on light volume is silly...pardon me -- it's normal.
Im well versed in how markets function Ben
Step 1- Turn on algo trading robot.
Step 2- ????
Step 3- PROFIT!!
I wouldn't be surprised if, via globex midnight pumping and the other various techniques, they jack this bitch right back up to the top, trapping the bears once again.
With all due respect, it would seem that some would not know a "Normal Market" if they saw one. Understandable I suppose since we haven't seen a "Normal Market" in this country for about 9 years or so when the Masters Of The Univesrse Took Control.. May i suggest you go back and look at charts from the early to late 90's (Before it got Rediculous) if you want to see what a "Normal Market" looked like. Typically, you would see Heavy volume on up days and Light volume on down days. The reason of course is because people actually wanted to own stocks. It was a wierd time when stocks were actually considered an investment - and were bought by Real people using their own Real money. It was so crazy that corporations actually made profits from selling shit as opposed to a collapsing currency and a strong dollar was actually considered a sign of a strong economy. Hell - it was so crazy that people actually use to pay their mortgages rather than defaulting on their mortgages and taking the money they should have paid their mortgage with to go out and buy gadgets like I Phones and I Pads. CRAZY I TELL YA - shit people use to actually buy their own groceries rather than sitting on their ass waiting for their food stamps to arrive. People actually had jobs back then - and well qualified applicants were in such demand that companies use to get into bidding wars for their services. We even had this thing called a Trade Surplus of all things -- weird shit like that! NOW - if you mean by "Professional Traders" you mean the FED and the PPT - then YES - you are probably correct since they came in with billions of dollar and bought up S&P Futures to make the bottom and delay the inevitable reality a little longer. But to think that Low volume Melt Ups and High Volume Sell Offs are representative of "Normal" in a supposed Bull Market -well I am afraid that is a mistaken concept.
Yeah, thumbs up to that.
LOL with Masters of the Universe... I had a flashback: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fO1ChfM94yQ
I think the U.S. needs to start a few more wars so we can bring this Free Market Capitalism to Everyone
RB I've enjoyed a multiplicity of your avatars this evening.
In the pipeline ... don't worry ....
Killing, polluting & bankrrupting is the american way - since 1848 :-P
Someone with graphic posting rights please post the IYR 10 day chart....
Un-be-fucking-lievable. I guess they are pretty serious about cornholing all the put holders, again...and again....and again.
More wealth in fewer hands.
It's the LOW valuations and flurry of corporate deals, bitchez. Lol! No matter where equities trade it's always the LOW valuations.
